How fortunate are we to live in a place where fresh food is literally around the corner! Farm stands, CSAs, specialty stores, farmers’ markets and collectives are helping to make shopping, cooking and dining an adventure. we are also fortunate to have access to the world thanks to ethnic markets and shops that are popping up all over the county.
America’s oldest farmers’ market is many things to many people. For some, it’s a shopping destination; for others, it’s a social experience. Tourists are mesmerized by it. No matter the relationship, Lancastrians are proud to call it their own.
